What's New?

On this page you will find information on the latest features, functionality, enhancements and content updates for SAGE Research Methods.


Now live--SAGE Research Methods Cases

New on the SRM platform, SAGE Research Methods Cases is a collection of hundreds of case studies of real social research, specially commissioned and designed to support teaching and learning in research methods. Each case is written to help students understand the often abstract-feeling methodological concepts by seeing how methods have been used in actual projects. These user-friendly texts add context, color, and genuine examples of research in action.  See how to use case studies in Research Methods teaching.

2014 Enhancements

  • Improved search results pages are now live!

        * Search results page now includes a brief definition of the method searched

        * Curated search results: the top 5 results for the top search terms have been hand-selected by methods experts, ensuring the most important texts appear front and center

        * Improved search functionality with use of synonyms 

            * Related content now includes Broader and Narrower Terms to help users discover related methods

  • Padlock icons will now appear next to titles in search results lists for content not subscribed to. For instance, these will appear next to Cases titles for customers who have access to SRM, but not SRM Cases.

  • Database Report 1 (DR1): Total Searches, Result Clicks and Record Views by Month and Database
